The UK Chief Medical Officers’ Physical Activity Guidelines for pregnancy recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate Escorts Agency Australia physical activity per week, with no known adverse risks to a pregnant woman. To get you going safely, the NHS has some handy rules for exercise during pregnancy that are essential to keep in mind.
Do not exhaust yourself
This is very important. When you’re pregnant it’s always better to work within the boundaries of what your body feels capable of. Consult your maternity team or GP if you have any Australia Escort Service doubts.
One way to know if you’re overexerting yourself is to the ‘Talk Test’. It’s as simple as it sounds: try to hold a conversation (or sing out loud to yourself) while moving. If you can’t, you’re going too hard. Reign it in, tiger.
Take it step by step
The same way you wouldn’t run a marathon the day after your first 5k, don’t jump into an exercise routine that’s vastly different to your Escort Agency Melbourne pre-pregnancy routine.
‘If you were not active before you got pregnant, do not suddenly take up strenuous exercise,’ says the NHS guidelines. Capice?
